BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Monday closed off the entrance to the Palestinian village of Beit Fajjar in the southern occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem, allegedly in response to an "attempted shooting.”

Israeli forces claimed that a speeding car with a Palestinian license plate fired shots towards the illegal Israeli settlement of Migdal Oz, located in the Bethlehem district, and immediately fled towards Beit Fajjar.

The Israeli army said in a statement that no injuries or damage were reported after the shooting.

Local sources told Ma’an that Israeli forces closed both the entrance and exit of the village with roadblocks, while soldiers deployed in the western side of the village.

Eyewitnesses reported that soldiers raided a gas station in the area to retrieve surveillance footage.
